When to Seek Treatment for Whiplash

How Do I Know if I Need Help with Whiplash?

If your symptoms are interfering with your life, it’s time to reach out, ask for help, and see a doctor for whiplash.

Painful symptoms tend to go away on their own in cases of mild whiplash. However, you may need professional treatment if your whiplash symptoms are keeping you up at night, keeping you from going to work or doing your job well, affecting your emotional state, or otherwise inhibiting your overall well-being.

You Don’t Have to Wait Until Whiplash Makes You Miserable to Receive Treatment

Keep in mind that even mild whiplash symptoms are a sign that your neck has been damaged. Knowing this, it may make the most sense in your case to seek treatment as soon as you see signs, such as:

  • Difficulty focusing or engaging in mentally stimulating activities
  • Difficulty remembering things
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain and/or stiffness
  • Neck pain and/or stiffness
  • New problems moving or using your arm(s)
  • Shoulder pain and/or stiffness
  • Symptoms of depression—and more

By addressing whiplash early on, you can prevent it from getting worse and keep it from getting to the point that it disrupts your life or prevents you from working, sleeping, and participating in daily life.
